I took the day off...and went to an Alpaca farm. Boy.. was that amazing!

It was remote in Illinois... Calhoun County ... by the town of Hardin.

So so quaint!

The alpacas were owned by a friend....and are taken care of royally.

They live on a bluff-- with a view of the Mississippi River.

Such beautiful and noble animals!

The owner harvests their fleece for garments and rugs. They are so soft...and so gentle.

What a treat to learn about their care -- and see their gentle kindness.

Thank you Kathy-- for opening your farm and letting us enjoy your world!

I would love to come to the UK Arti... just help me plan a workshop -- so I can offset expense! I know your country is beautiful .... Hope you are good!

Studio... we did have fun. It was a beautiful day-trip to the country. Perfect company...and wonderful furry friends.

Thank you Jyoti! I felt recharged when I came back. The alpacas were only 2 hours away...although they are also in Latin America. When I go visit my son ... I will certainly bring home inspiration from Hong Kong!
